Thank You, Commissioner Troxler

For decades, no one has been allowed to bring a gun to the NC State Fair.  But a group is planning to sue to change that.  The Commissioner of Agriculture, Steve Troxler, said that he would keep guns off of state fairgrounds this year.

Please sign the thank you note to Commissioner Troxler for committing to keep the state fair gun-free.

Dear Commissioner Troxler:

Thank you for keeping the ban on concealed weapons at the NC State Fair.  Everyone should feel safe at our state fairgrounds.  We hope that people will listen to your message to leave their guns in the car or at home so that everyone can have a safe time at the fair. 

Thanks again,

    Thanks – I wouldn’t go to the fair if guns were permitted.

    Having unregulated arms citizens is a menace to a peaceful population.

    We are not cowboys in wide open spaces. We are people moving about in groups that are vulnerable to onslaught.

    No one needs a gun at the State Fair. Send everyone through the metal detector so everyone can enjoy a fun time without gun fire (accidental or otherwise).
